      Do we have Nigerian Magistrates in Zambia??

    • Ikechukwu’s mother is Zambian. He was born in Zambia and has grown up here. He is the young brother to Inutu Himanje of ZNBC.

  1. So they will be pardoned by our very own lovely humble ECL Jamerson Lungu. This time when people start to lose confidence in our legal system.

  2. What about the mob police were struggling to control? The two charged PF cadres were part of that mob beamed all over the world attempting to maim, hurt even kill opposition leader.

  3. No one has reported chama to police how do you expect the police to take action. It’s a false story if you like.

  4. If they’re not summoned to court, it’s a problem. If they’re summoned to court, it’s also a problem. What do critics want? Let’s wait until ruling before throwing stones

  5. Mumbi Phiri initially said HH was not attacked by PF cadres and that he was lying. With this court appearances, what is are stance?
